Placed another order for some DS games:
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - 10.68
Treasure World - 14.12
Sim City Creator - 1

$28.01 shipped, sad that I have to pay tax for these, but at about 9.34 a game thought it wasn't bad. Also the $5 off on orders of $25 or more make it so shipping is essentially free when you get 3 games. Surprised that Fire Emblem was only 10.68, this was a must buy at that price for me.

Pretty sure the difference between the used versions for CoD 4 is the GOTY edition & the regular edition. It just doesn't state it is GOTY edition though.

One reason you see Used from $28 is because on one of the consoles it may be $28. That doesn't mean it is $28 for the console the picture is of (360 picture, but the price may be for the PS2 version or something). As for that weird CoD being different prices on the same system. Who knows...

I got an email that says if you just proceed to checkout it should work. I don't know if you need to have been sent the email or not, it doesn't really seem like it. Second time I have used it though, nice that it stacks with the b2g1 deal.

Do you happen to know when this promotion began? I bought some games at the beginning of the sale, but I don't recall getting $5 off.

Thanks.

I believe the promotion just started Monday, I think someone posted it in this thread that night. I never bought from Hastings before Monday night but I got the $5 off doing so, so it should be available for everyone. Looks like in most cases with the $5 off and how the B2G1 works, in most cases you will be better off placing separate orders of 3 to get the most savings if there are a lot of things you want to order.

Don't take my word as truth because I am almost never completely sure about anything I do but...
Ii seems the 5 off 25 discount is only applied if you're logged in. Not a big deal, but I guess for new buyers to get this, they have to create an account first instead of just doing the guest checkout.

Yeup, the 5 off 25 is only applied when you're logged in. Also, the sale started pretty damn while ago didn't it? I swear I've seen it up for at least a week or two.

I ordered my games on Monday night probably around 6:30 Pacific time and I received my first game in the mail today. This was my first order and needless to say so far I'm pretty impressed.

First off Thanks for the reply.
Secondly, HAHA. I can't believe I asked that question. I just checked my email and saw one from gohastings that said 5 off 25 sent jan 4. :wall::rofl:

Any one experienced/familiar with gohastings know if the stackable 5 off 25 usually coincides with a b2g1 or is this just lucky for us?
I don't really want to buy too much right now as I won't get to it for a while and I'm almost sure the prices will drop by then. I'm not too sure the price will drop enough to cover shipping cause I'm eying some $12-15 games.

I was wondering to anyone if I should call their customer support. I order 3 psp games on the 22nd of December and I received 2 of the 3 on the 28-31 of December. It is Wednesday night and I am wondering if it was lost or it might come by Friday.

Started frequenting this site around August and they had a $5 code for subscribing to their newsletter, was a one use only deal (dunno when that ended). Haven't seen any type of $5 codes or instant $5 offs like this one until now. Kinda gave up on trying to find a way to negate the shipping cost, so I'm just looking at this as a rare occurrence cherry on top thing.

Haven't been around very long though, so there's the chance I couldn't be more wrong.

It definitely stacks with the B2G1 as I made an order a couple days ago with the same promotion.

I'm asking whether they usually have both at the same time or if this is just a one time lucky event.

Received the 2nd item of my order, Guitar Hero World Tour Guitar bundle today. Needless to say, I am not impressed with Gohastings whatsoever. The guitar included was from Guitar Hero 3 and there was no receiver. This is absolutely unfuckingacceptable. Requesting a refund and canceling my account tomorrow. For those who plan on ordering any older games, be advised.

Oh I am aware of that, I click on Xbox 360 so only the 360 game prices are shown(or at least I would think so), then I click the game and the price is different for example.

I'm shocked no one has actually explained this as of yet. The various prices for the used copies of COD4:MW2 are for the various editions of the game(Hardened, etc, etc), since I think there were around 3-4 or so versions of the game per console.

So that $80 something version may well be the one that comes with the night vision goggles and display stand for them, while the $28 version is just the game by itself. Hope this clears it up for you.

As for GoHastings, I am REALLY tempted to hit up their site and order a few titles before this sale ends, but both my PC's are on the fritz right now so I guess that's trying to tell me to save my $$$.

You should call, since they ended up canceling my third game since it was out of stock. They didn't even offer me a discount or a replacement game but instead refunded me a dollar... So I ended up having to return the two other games.

See if you can work something out with them before everything is finalized and charged to your account.

This was not the third game (or cheaper of the three so I will be refunded) but it is annoying. Thanks for the response.

I'm a first time customer, ordered 6 games and received 5 within 4 days. The majority of the games came complete and in near mint condition. Gotta say I'm pretty impressed with GoHastings' games and shipping time.

Damn, that stinks.

I ordered Punch-Out!!, Resident Evil 4 and MadWorld (1.00). They canceled Res 4, so I'm getting Punch-Out!! and MadWorld for 36.00 shipped.

If you are shocked by that then search "Wolfenstein" on amazon.com and be amazed by the prices for the older games
